Attorney for Katina Powell says she will speak to NCAA
11/12/2015 04:33 PM
Katina Powell, the former Louisville escort at the center of allegations of sexual misconduct within the University of Louisville basketball program, is expected to speak with the NCAA next week about her claims.
Two weeks ago, Powell’s attorney, Larry Wilder, said his client would not speak with NCAA investigators unless she was granted immunity from criminal charges. Now, in addition to cooperating with the investigation, Wilder also says his client will turn over all documents related to her claims.
Wilder sent the following statement to cn|2 Sports:
“In consideration of the fact that the Commonwealth is going forward and considering criminal charges against Ms Powell it is no longer in her best interest to forgo meeting with the NCAA and sharing all of the demonstrative evidence she has to support her position.”
On Monday, five women joined a civil complaint against Powell, saying their names and images were used without their permission in Powell’s book, “Breaking Cardinal Rules.”
A UofL Athletics spokesperson declined to comment on any details until the review is concluded to “preserve the integrity of the review process.”
